12:43 am
least september because of the >> it iselection? interesting and it highlights a number of political overlays. the -- immediately after that brings it, the market was until 2018fed action . now we have a 50% probability that the fed will do something by december 2016. timing,e election september is uncertain. seefed would be needing to fairly strong unilateral positive outcomes in both wagers and inflation for a september move. closer to december is more likely to be the outcome, particularly given this
